Untitled[edit]

A splendidly obscure featured article! Ben Finn 21:23, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Article formatting gone awry?[edit]

The text of the article seems totally garbled after the first two paragraphs. Maybe something's gone wrong with the formatting?

Appears fine to me. Can you be more specific? (also, what browser do you use?) Tuf-Kat 15:56, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
I think they accessed thearticle while it looked like this.Circeus 19:31, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Oh, dear, okay. Thanks for the fixes (this is one article that didn't really benefit much from being on the main page, I think, unfortunately). Tuf-Kat 02:34, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Copyvio[edit]

Re the recent addition of content by 50.192.218.161 that was rolled back by Binksternet without explanation:

I don't know exactly why Binksternet rolled it back (perhaps they spotted the copyvio too), but it seems to be a copyvio so please don't add it back. Sources that it seems to have been ripped from include: http://www.nriachievers.in/calypso-soca-steelpan-and-of-course-chutney-limbo, http://www.socawarriors.net/forum/index.php?topic=34026.20;wap2, http://www.nattybongo.tv/2014-soca-music/.

Thanks, GoddersUK (talk) 08:30, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

The first reason I reverted was because the IP editor cannot participate here as he is the blocked person behind IP 203.205.126.84 (talk · contribs · WHOIS). Any action from him may be reverted on sight.
Secondly, the guy has been found to have copied text straight out of various sources. This is not always the case with his edits but it is a common problem with him.
The third and much less important reason is that the addition was very poorly written, not worthy of a Featured Article. Binksternet (talk) 08:35, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
The guy is also the blocked IP 203.205.124.174 (talk · contribs · WHOIS), who has edited this article since May 2013. There are earlier edits that go way back: probably 209.158.179.206 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) from 2010. This article is going to need a thorough checkup with an eye to copyright violation, poor sourcing, original research, etc. Binksternet (talk) 08:41, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Here is the diff showing the changes since FA status was conferred in 2006. Of course, many changes are constructive, but you can see that our excitable friend the IP editor has added a lot of material about the band Exile One, the band Kasav', and the styles kadans, compas, cadence rampa, cadence-lypso, zouk, bouyon, etc. Binksternet (talk) 08:53, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
